Chicken Soup @ MAWTT

OMG! How late am I this week!
I'm writing this post as quick as I can to make the challenge time, now I know how the White Rabbit felt, at this point the card you are about to see isn't finished, it has no inside but I plan on getting it done PDQ and editing my post.

So onto this weeks challenge at
and this week our little Shell has chosen


Honestly I know so many people who have been ill I need to make at least a dozen of these! (bit of a joke as I haven't even managaed to finish this one!)
Once again I have been inspired by the now infamous MARY J. I saw this image on her blog and fell in love, Mary you are costing me a fortune!
The image is now one of my favourite! Its called Chicken Soup and its from Bugaboo. I swear by chicken soup when I'm not well. The flowers are a die cut from Dienamics and all the shapes are Nesties.
Edited to show inside!
I got it done at last! and this is now on its way to my poorly friend.
We have a lovely new sponsor
The prize is a $10 voucher to spend in store.

Please head over to the main challenge blog if you haven't come from there and check out all the inspiration from the fabby DT and GDT.

Thanks for stopping by today, I'm sorry its a quickie, going back to work has thrown me into chaos!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
